Recently, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), along with the U.S. Department of Labor, released the CareerInfo app that is now available from the Apple App Store and Google Play. The CareerInfo app provides information from the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) the most popular BLS resource for career information.
The OOH is described as "the nation's most widely used sources of career information. It provides details on hundreds of occupations and is used by career counselors, students, parents, teachers, jobseekers, career changers, education and training officials, and researchers. The OOH is also available online at www.bls.gov/ooh. If you are wanting to explore new occupations the app or online edition will serve you well.
